Westcare rocks...


I was privilege to get a small look into what Westcare Salvation Army does in the western suburbs of Melbourne today... it's incredible.
And it makes a lot of sense... often The Salvation Army works with those at the end of their rope - who are at the bottom of the barrel - in drug addiction and the like... but we don't often enough look at the root causes of that rejection and intervene earlier to prevent the end of the road... Westcare is primarily a youth services program that really tries to target those kids who are at risk of social exclusion...
foster care
residential services
and much much more... they need foster parents.. i met with a couple of carers this afternoon - and they are people with a practical hope of redemption who are willing to embrace kids... in all shapes and sizes.. perhaps one thing you can do right now for social justice is to apply to be a foster parent... who knows the kind of impact you can make in a life... stay tuned for more details..
